    If many people were wronged by the improper conduct of a company, then they should have the freedom to join in a lawsuit. Many times the company can outlast any individual person in a drawn out lawsuit, and this is why we as the public need this rule to remain in place. Without it, it severely inhibits our right to justice.

    I see this policy as discouraging for people who seek justice and accountability from large businesses which is difficult enough already. This is a move in a direction that implies to businesses that there will be no consequence for bad business or malpractice.

    Don’t gift those who gamed and gained this countries people, exploiting your people. The people you serve. Don’t forget elected officials are in service to those they elect, to game/bank off this shit is betrayal, a form of oppression, oppression is the one objective evil globally, do not oppress your people by aligning with a “King”(Corp.) who does wrong yet has the power to take responsibility and those also in power to demand compliance, to take away that responsibility(?) this is disgust’.
